They just can’t help themselves. Democrats are having meltdowns left and right (but mostly left) over the Benghazi investigation. Now it’s David Plouffe’s turn. It’s actually pretty impressive how the former Obama campaign manager and adviser crammed so much misinformation and jackassery into 140 characters.
The strategy is pretty clear: poison the well by mocking Republican “obsession” with a “phony scandal.” They just can’t see how ham-handed and callous they appear in the process. It’s like they moved the Paul Wellstone memorial into the Twitterverse. Plouffe is getting a faceful.
.@davidplouffe Hi David, we were wondering what you think the words "running a surplus" mean? Let us know if you need us to clear that up.

@davidplouffe Why don't you mock Sean Smith's mother Pat Smith with that disgusting and dismissive tone. See what happens.

Apparently the death of Ambassador Stevens is a joke to @davidplouffe. He represents the party that "cares" about people?

@davidplouffe A commander-in-chief who prioritized four American lives behind four more years. Benghazi!

@davidplouffe While we're investigating Benghazi, we also need to get to the bottom of the IRS scandal and Fast and Furious.

“@DieZauberer: @davidplouffe GOP "Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi". Anything to avoid "jobs jobs jobs". You mean the 90 million unemployed?
